Universal Citizen

Universal Citizen

Respect is one of the most vital and unifying aspects of human relationships. When we value each other, we can all rise and do well. Wise people nurture understanding, consideration, kindness, and honor. This is a sign of positive citizenship.

Respect is not merely an obligation but also a way to affirm one another’s dignity and worth despite differences in opinion, status, or background. We are all a part of the human family. Without respect for each other, we will lose touch with our humanity.

As American citizens, we can be a beacon to the rest of the world by showing forth our highest ideals. Phillip James Bailey once said, “Respect is what we owe; love is what we give.”  

“Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone…just remember that everyone in this world hasn’t had the advantages you’ve had.” 

F Scott Fitzgerald

“First of all, then, I urge that prayers for yourself and others and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all people, kings, and those in positions of authority.” This practice can help us foster a sense of connection and compassion, leading to a peaceful and quiet life in harmony with divinity.
